“It was cool. I really didn’t — when I looked at the score, I saw it was 19-20. Perfect play call. We’re going to make it happen. [We] just came up short.”
There have been many varying opinions on what Baltimore should have done in the situation that they were in. Some believe that going for two was the right decision, while other would have preferred going to overtime. However, head coach John Harbaugh trusted his young quarterback, and Jackson agreed with the decision of his coach.
